Garden waste collection service

Garden waste collection service

  • we collect from households every 2 weeks, on a Wednesday
  • the annual subscription for the 2024/25 service, is £75.90 per year (£55.90 concession if you receive benefits)

  • the subscription year runs from 1 April to 31 March (if you want a year’s worth of collections, you must sign up before 1 April, for the upcoming year)
  • if you subscribe later in the year you only pay for the remaining months of the subscription year
  • by subscribing to the service you can put out up to 3 bags of garden waste (in the bags we provide) per collection, until the end of the subscription year (we only provide the bags for new customers) 
  • if, on any occasion, you want to put out more than this, then you need to pay to increase your bag collection allowance
  • every extra bag collection allowance you purchase, (£9 each), means you can put out one more bag (provided by us) of garden waste, with every collection, for the subscription year
